Folding, spindeling, and mutilating lauguage for fun since Aug, 2004
Wednesday, 23 January 2008

I was just volunteering at Adventure Boy's school today, scanning in and re-shelving text-books that had been issued to students for the semester.  I finished early, and the lady I was helping out gave me some "new" (as in recently purchased) books.

I had to put an inventory number on them, stamp and date them, and then shelve them.

Guess what I found out?

Our richie-rich school district buys USED textbooks.

Now, I'm OK with that, as the books were nice and seemed just as good as new.

But it's just one more thing that irritates me when people talk about how our schools are "wasteful".
